Flight Hacking DLC to LYA

Flight hacking is when you book two tickets instead of a layover, sometimes with different airlines. You will need to either bring only a carry-on bag (highly recommended) or leave yourself plenty of time to go through security again. Flight hacking is completely allowed, but airlines don’t always tell you the cheapest way to get from DLC to LYA — but Champion Traveler does!

  • Price for both tickets: $950
